R.O.C.K.—Refugee Outreach Clothing Kids

The Denver Health Foundation hosted a distribution of new clothing for refugee children who are patients at Denver Health’s Lowry Family Health Center on Sunday, March 26th, from 10am to 2pm.    As a result of donations being collected across the city, along with a significant contribution from the Foundation,  over 300 children “shopped” for new clothing—warm coats, hats, gloves, jeans, shirts, shoes, socks and underwear. 

The families who participated have recently arrived in Denver with help from the United Nations and the U.S. government.  They have come from Burma, Syria, Congo, Nepal, Afghanistan, Somalia, Eritrea, Iraq, Ukraine and Ethiopia and they are building new lives in America after surviving unspeakable hardships in their countries of origin.  Denver Health is proud to serve this vulnerable group of patients and thanks to the Refugee Clinic at Lowry it is the first time many of them have ever received regular medical care. 

You can welcome these children to Denver and help them get off to a strong start in their new home with a donation to R.O.C.K. by clicking here.   More information on the 2018 date coming soon, but for more urgent inquiries please contact Robin.Engleberg@dhha.org
